Kevin M. Kraft answers the question: Who were or are your main musical influences?

Posted on October 29, 2019 at 10:30am 1 Comment

Q: Who were or are you main musical influences?



Kevin: Many would probably laugh at the vast array of music that I love and has influenced me. The British band The Electric Light Orchestra epitomizes my typical hybridizing of musical styles and genres, with Jeff Lynne's always reliably captivating slide guitar work sealing it for me. I learned a lot from Lynne and the band about songwriting and arranging and unusual vocals and symphony, even something as "trivial" as the drumbeats…

Well, alongside my many accomplishments, among the many hats I wear in my busy life, I can now add one with great tears of pride: Founder of the Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. It took three years of pitching and talking and finally joining the Kansas City Blues Society itself, but our first festival occurred on July 31st.

Kevin,

This is killing me.  My son and I are Road Rally racing in upper Minnesota that weekend.  He drives and I co-drive.  We only get 2-3 events a year and he really wanted to do this one.  It should  be our last race as a "novice" team, so it's a big deal.  I'm lucky to have an adult son who still wants to do things with dad.

 

I'll be thinking good thought for the Festival.  Hope you have tons of fun.

 

Sam

No problem.

And thanks, I would love to be a part of this if it works for me. 8v)

Have you been to The Cigar Merchant in Blue Springs? They are on hwy 7 off I-70, I ask because the guy working when I stopped in told me the money from box sales goes to a local halfway house for addicts. A noble cause in my opinion. Not sure if you are close to it but just a gratuitous plug.
